Hello hello hello!

What shall I show you first today? This post is special as I have to show you two finished projects and they are both lovely 🙂

Ok. First.The pink stool.

I’ve had this wood stool from ages ago but it was in an ugly brown…I painted it pink and decided to make for it a nice crocheted cover…that was in may 2012 if my memory is good … I started it with the Ricco creative cotton… and never blogged about it…

Last week I decided to finish it 😉

Because I was into “stools” and was making the red one for a special order, the pink one had to be done too…

So, here it is: Enjoyyyyyyyyy………………….

pink-stool-done4

Yarn: Rico creative cotton

Hook: 4mm

For the edging I sew this cute pompom trim to the back of the crochet 🙂

I love pompoms 😀

This last pic show the pink color of the wood as it is “live”

And for the second project…

I am sure you already guessed…

It is one more cute cat for my hubby… He chose the colors 😉

Nicolas-amineko

and I love it! These cats are really addictive 🙂

the-2-lovers-1

That’s all my friends 🙂

Next time I’ll tell you about the crazy project I am in now … It is taking all my time, I’m thinking about it all day long and it is making me crazy 🙂

Sending you happy kisses and lot lot of love through this post!

Hello sweeties,

It is friday already and we are in August. Time really flies and sometimes I just don’t realize how time is passing by so quickly…

I am crocheting a lot these days and that makes me really happy and takes all the stress away 🙂

I told you in a previous post about that special order of a pink wood stool…

pink-stool-wip1

… I’ve began the crochet-granny-squares-cover of it…

pink-stool-wip2

and I am very pleased with how it is turning out 😉

And guess what? I finished my very own amineko. Yes, this guy, this mustard guy is totally mine…

(This mustard color is my favorite of the moment. I used to hate, yes hate this color in the past…now I love it 🙂 )

my-amineko

I love his wide eyes open. He seems very curious about everything just like myself 😀 😀

my-amineko--

I crocheted it with a thinner yarn than the previous ones. So this one is smaller …

two-together

and guess what? Hubby wants one 😀 😀 hahahaha and he already chose the colors 🙂

But he’ll have to wait because I have to finish the stool cover first 😉

amineko

Life is good my friend… Enjoy it… Enjoy every second of it…

Wishing you a wonderful weekend with your loved ones

Thank you for visiting!

Helloooooo!

Did you guess what I’m talking about??

1 the-3-of-us

Oh yes! The crazy woman in me crocheted these 3 cats in two weeks… Well the second and third one in a week!

It was fast and mad crochet… but I kept my promise and I finished two cats for the girls before the weekend…as the blue one was made first for little Joe…and the girls wanted their own amineko 🙂

6-blue

Blue was patiently waiting for his friends in Joe’s room…

4-purple

…while I was crocheting purple for Sarah… She chose the colors and was very happy once purple was done 🙂

5-purple

Then I asked my biggest girl Christina what colors she wanted for her cat. She answered black with a multi coloured shirt (with all the colors you have in your stash mummy 🙂 hahaha ) This is my girl 😉

2-black

and there was Black in all its glory 😀

3-black

The girls slept with their cats and I was very happy…I love when they play with handmade toys and I feel proud to produce something they’ll cherish for years (I hope so 😉 )

7--the-3-of-us

These cats are my addiction of the moment…

I feel like making one for myself too (don’t tell anyone 😉 )

8--the-3-of-us

If you want to make your own “amineko”…  (It is very easy to crochet) … You can purchase the book in this previous post of mine here…or in the left sidebar of the blog between the books 🙂

Have a wonderful monday!

Good morning sweeties,

How’s everything? Are you enjoying summer?

Last week I discovered a very cute book and since that moment I am totally addicted…

amineko1

Totally in love with that little cat…and totally addicted in the “making-process” of it 🙂

amineko2

amineko3

I started my second “amineko” yesterday. He needs a friend no? 🙂 Look how he is patiently waiting for me to finish his friend 😉

amineko4

Ami means friend and neko means cat in japanese. The book is a japanese one but it has been tranlated into english and french. I just “love” japanese books. Aren’t they the best?

amineko5

It is a very easy to make cat , the instructions of the book are very clear and simple and there is a very funny story about amineko.

amineko6

Now I am totally into making “amineko”s. How many will I crochet? 😀

amineko7

I will not stop with just two …I am sure… I left all my wips behind and I am enjoying enjoying enjoying to the max this amigurumi cute cat…

amineko8

Isn’t it adorable?

If you would fancy making an amineko…

You can find here the book in english.

And for my french ladies, you can find it here 😉

I also changed the books in the left sidebar of the blog, if you love to take a peek, they are all wonderfull !!

And one more little thing before I go… You can now leave a comment on the post…It wasn’t working on my last one and I was feeling miserable without all your kind words…It really means a lot to me… Just say hello so I know that you are here… it makes me really happy…

Wishing you sunshine, love, peace and many many moments of joy…
